State of mind is the one thing that can colour every other aspect of our lives – it directly impacts our health and well-being, as well as that of those around us. How can an essential oil influence our state of mind? The answer is pretty simple: inhaling essential oils has a direct effect on the human brain. The chemical balance in our brains is changing constantly. Every impression that passes through our mind causes an alteration that mediates emotion. Essential oils provide a very simple and effective way to change the way we feel. The inhalation of certain essential oils signals the brain to exert endorphins that will bring us back into balance. In other words: adding simple, beautiful, natural scent into our daily routines can make us happy.

Your already extremely busy day probably doesn’t include reading up on potential concerning ingredients in your shampoo or body wash (or toothpaste or floor cleaner or furniture polish…)—ours certainly didn’t. We have enough on our plate with kids, work, pickups, pets, telephone calls, bills, school forms, lunches, dinners, vacations, PD Days, childcare and all of the other minute decisions we make in between. BUT. Sometimes, late at night or while we’re commuting to or from one of the various places we have to be in a day, or even when we’re yelling at a child to PLEASE, BRUSH YOUR TEETH...the thoughts creep in. Are there really toxic chemical filters in my sunscreen?” or, “What makes my toothpaste minty green?” or even, “What will my baby ingest if he licks my just-cleaned floor?”

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils and their healing properties as part of your self care rituals. Maybe that means using sweet orange to boost your mood, peppermint to refresh, or lavender to calm. When we’re talking about aromatherapy, we’re usually talking about diffusing the oils into your space, or in body products like body scrubs and massage oils.
